There’s little doubt that free video guitar lessons are becoming widely available on the web these days especially through video sharing sites such as YouTube.
Guitar lessons for free may be the product of amateurs or professionals and as such the quality of the instruction can vary greatly. Not everyone knows how to deliver good video guitar lessons!
I would say that free guitar lessons are a good initial source of information however few complete series of lessons exist and as such users can find themselves frustrated from learning just ‘a little of this, a little of that’. As a consequence some find learning from free video guitar lessons ultimately unrewarding in the long term.
You can of course, with persistence, find some excellent quality guitar lessons from certain producers. If nothing else they should provide you with great tasters of what you can learn from the complete modules on offer.
In my opinion the confidence of ‘try before you buy’ is the main strength of these free video guitar lessons. By trying out the instruction before you commit to a membership you are able to insure that the teaching is of a high and effective quality.
Free Online Guitar Lessons: Where to find them?
To locate the best lessons for free the obvious places to search would be in Google and YouTube. Be warned however that many sites will advertise FREE video guitar lessons without actually including them on the site! This is often used as a gimmick just to get you to visit their homepage.
Probably the best use of free online guitar lessons is when you want to learn just one specific song or technique rather than an entire guitar method. It’s also good to combine videos from different sources and in combination with 1-1 lessons or books you may be learning from.
As with most things, learning from a variety of different sources is a healthy way to increase your general knowledge of guitar playing and the abundance of online guitar lessons is an excellent resource in this regard.
The best news is as more and more guitar websites compete for your membership and attention, the number of free video guitar lessons is only going to increase in number and in quality.
